For steel plates and steel rivets:

w" = i *31 x ~r   = i '09 ins.
For iron plates and iron rivets :

w" = 1*31 x— = rr.4 ins.

For copper plates and copper rivets:

P. 419. Strength of Hollow Shafts.

Example 66.—A hollow steel shaft is to be designed so as to
tneet safely a twisting moment of 280 ton inches. The internal diameter
being 3 ins., find the external diameter :

= 81        or D4-2030-81

This equation may be put in the form

D4-203 D-8i  = y

and a curve may be constructed shewing y for various values of D,
the correct value of D being that corresponding to y = o.    Thus :

D  = 4

D  = 6
